Rady Children's Feeding Team was established in 1997 to evaluate and provide intervention for infants and children with serious feeding problems who refuse to eat or have extensive limitations in the type or texture of foods they will tolerate. Early identification and intervention for children who cannot or will not eat is a critical factor for helping them to develop to their full potential physically and emotionally.
We provide comprehensive individualized evaluations and intervention programs, such as group treatment for peer-modeling/parent support and community or caregiver education. Services are provided for children between the developmental ages of 12 months and 8 years who have concerns about inadequate or unsuccessful feeding.
The first step to initiate a referral to the Rady Children's Feeding Team is to talk with your child's primary care doctor (pediatrician). Once a referral is called in, you will be contacted to discuss the referral and learn how to continue the process.
